Nothing identifies us Filipinos other than the food we eat, our cuisine. So on this post, I will be sharing some of my memorable food trips around the Philippines.
In case you didn’t know, there is an on-going “star search” (naks) for the first ever Soo Pinoy Ultimate Food Blogger. Soo Pinoy aims to introduce different Filipino cuisine along with the history and the best places to find these dishes. I know! This is another “Pilipinas Tara Na!” opportunity so I took this chance to join this so-called “star search” for me to get to know more about the rich Philippine culture. As a travel and food blogger (and a self-proclaimed tourism ambassador), I always make sure that I take a snapshot of every place I go to and share it on my blog so that I can help in promoting Philippines in my own little ways.
With Soo Pinoy’s campaign, discovering, exploring (and digesting, literally and figuratively) our very own Filipino cuisine made me think this is something that I should never miss in my lifetime. Honestly, for almost 2 years of travel/food blogging, I have only encountered few places where they serve great Pinoy food probably because I was raised in a Kapampangan household with good cooks so my standard for great food is way above the average hah! ;). So I hope I’d be given the chance to get a taste of the Philippines and be called the Soo Pinoy Ultimate Food Blogger.
Nuff said. :)
